Our raku pottery vase
Flora’s Hope, celebrates a very special Roman goddess. Flora was not only the goddess of flowers and spring, but she was also the goddess of youth and her initiates really knew how to throw a great party!
Speaking of great parties
Flora even had her own festival! Floralia was traditionally held between April 28th and May 3rd and typically included drinking, flower costumes, plays, mimes, and ended in a hunt and feast! This festival celebrated the renewal of life – which is something I would like to do more of – especially when I wake up each day!
What is a song that you would want to have played at a festival that celebrates life?
And what do you think of our raku pottery vase, ‘Flora’s Hope‘? Let me know in the comments below!
When I come to the end, and people gather to celebrate my life, I want to have the gospel song “I’ll Fly Away” played.
That’s a beautiful sentiment and song! I definitely like the idea of people celebrating a life, and I hope when my time comes people do that too.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
i literally adore your myth-potter-thology stories. keep them forever coming

Flora is beautiful.
The song that comes to mind is Scott McKenzie’s “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers In Your Hair)”
Oh i love that song! That is a celebration of life for sure!
I would love to hear Firestone by Kygo
That’s a beautiful song! I sometimes listen to Kyogo music when I throw. I find that style of music very relaxing.
I hope you are having a great weekend!

So gentle and quiet from afar and full of character when looking closely. Beautiful vase!
Wow! Thank you for such a kind and beautiful comment Astrid! I really appreciate you taking the time to check out my work and this post!
That’s a brilliant vase interpretation of Flore! The cracks even look like branches carrying blossoms. 😊
